Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie is a target for Real Madrid, according to The Mirror.

The Dutchman has scored 15 Premier League goal this season, but uncertainty sounding the renewal of his contract means he's been linked with a a number of the country's top clubs.

Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United have both previously been linked with a move for Van Persie, but now Madrid have joined the race for the Arsenal man.

Van Persie has clouded his future by stating he won't discuss a new deal until the end of the season.

His form has been such that the likes of Chelsea and United have reportedly been circling, and the given the nature of Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy's summer departure, both of whom left with a year left on their contracts.

United were originally one of those interested in Nasri, before he was offloaded to City, while Chelsea might make an audacious bid for Van Persie if Didier drogue follows Nicolas Anelka out of the club before the end of the season.

Arsenal will be keen to prevent a situation where Van Persie leaves to one of this biggest rivals, but also for nothing in 2013.
